When to Drink Chateau Mejean, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Rahoul can be enjoyed on the young side with decanting. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 1 hour, or so. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Chateau Rahoul is usually better with at least 3-4 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Rahoul offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 4-9 years of age after the vintage.
